My arms and legs have black & blue marks and my skin feels like it is on fire and itches and stings.  Someone told me it could be caused by steroids.  I take advair, spirivia, nebulizer treatment daily.  I take neurotin for the pain and itching and it works sometimes.  Have Lyrica but hesitant to use.  My question is can I do without one of the drugs that have steroids...

I was diagnosed along time ago with COPD. About 6 months ago my primary sent me to a Pulmonary Dr, where my xrays showed asthma AND my COPD, AND a lung infection. I took antibiotics for 3 1/2 months. Now I can't fold a load of laundry without my inhaler, or walk to the end of the driveway without stopping. I am 58, and live in Florida. Does it ease up at least ?

If your health insurance plan covers quit-smoking treatments, you are more likely to try to quit and be successful. A new report from the American Lung Association, "State Health Insurance Marketplace Plans: New Opportunities to Help Smokers Quit," finds that the majority of health insurance plans and policymakers are not taking advantage of the chance to help millions of smokers quit.
